Éiru, a brand new music series featuring female and non-binary artists, launches at the Playground this Monday, October 3.

For the first four Mondays in October, the Playground, a unique space for musical artists and creatives to connect and collaborate, will be transformed into a tranquil evening venue, with beanbags and blankets galore.

Each evening three of Ireland’s most promising upcoming female and non-binary artists will take to the stage for a beautiful intimate acoustic set.

It’s the perfect way to start your week with chilled tunes in a relaxed environment and all for a good cause as proceeds from each of the sessions go towards supporting LGBTQ+ youth charity Belong To.

Week one, Monday, October 3, will be headlined by Krea (Karen Crowley of Wyvern Lingo). Hailing from Bray as one part of the indie band Wyvern Lingo, she has previously performed with artists such as Denise Chaila and Hozier.

Krea will launch the Éiru sessions, bringing her uniquely jazzy vocals and upbeat contemporary stylings to perform tracks from her stunning new debut album In a Week

The third artist for the opening night is Donegal singer-songwriter Larabelle. Her dreamy pop-folk tracks explore themes of mental health and addiction. Currently in her final year of studying music at BIMM, Larabelle promises to be one to watch out for.
